Stayed here one night and it was the quietest spot I've stayed around SLC. You can hear some of the loud trucks on the highway and some planes, but not bad and pretty irregular. No one else was around when I got there in the evening, slept in late and stayed til after lunch.

We had a last minute issue come up with our wheel and called around everywhere looking for same day help. Most mechanic shops did not promise same day help, and a lot even had 3 day waits. Tony took us in right away and diagnosed / fixed the (very small) issue within 20 mins. Charged $40 for it all, such a lucky find despite some very nasty reviews on google maps (ignore them, he does seem honest and hard working).

pasamos tres días en el estacionamiento. nunca sacamos sillas ni mesa ni nada. Pudimos estar super tranquilos. los domingos hay más gente pero si no bastante tranquilo. vimos muchas focas y la playa larga, a la derecha del estacionamiento mirando al mar, es preciosa. En el medio de la playa corta hay baños públicos y grifo de agua.

Literally does not exist. I pulled in here and was simply confused— see for yourself on Google Maps. Is there a convenience store here?

We could not find the place mentioned 900 meters after this spot, but found another a little before (27.540524, 85.120186). This way you get away from the main road.
Only for small vehicles (we have a Landrover) with 4x4. For 2x2 and bigger vans the marked spot near the main road will be better.

The small dirt road is not almost unused as others has mentioned. Today buses and trucks use the road. Not a lot during the night but still some noise. Nobody bothered us though, and it was still the most quiet place we have slept for a while (coming from India).

not a bad campsite. You can park anywhere. There is a very small view over the crater. Showers were cold in the day but hot at night. Toilets only squat toilets I think but we only checked one block so maybe the others were Western! There's a few big kitchen areas which the tour operators use but there will be extra space, and also a small shop for coffees, ice cream, snacks beer chocolate etc. They can provide lots of wood for a fire but very expensive.

Fees are as described below - incredibly expensive. Seeing the sunrise over the crater though was otherwordly and the crater itself was beautiful with so much wildlife. For us it was worth it to do it once. Try and get in as early as possible. There's lots of nice picnic areas in the crater itself. The road from crater to Serengeti is the worst corrugations we've ever experienced in Africa - beware!! Yes there are a lot or people who will ask for things if you stop in the areas near the crater. Beautiful landscapes. If you're here between Dec-Mar go to Ndutu!! It's part of the NCA not serengeti so you can work that into your fees to spend less time in serengeti. The migration will be here and it's an incredible area (see entry for great migration camps for more info).

Un joli spot en plein front de mer! Nous avons eu la chance de voir un paresseux et une grenouille (vert fluo avec des tâches noires). Pas de commodités. Nous nous sommes sentis en sécurité tout le temps.

A beautiful spot near the ocean. We had luck to see a sloth and a frog ( fluorescent green with black donts). Without amenities . We felt safe everytime.

wrong location, there is a Tamara Lake View close to the lake, but I didn't see a parking space, so we went to Roxy, directly at the lake.

Heart of Texas picnic area. Trash cans, covered picnic tables and several flat spots for larger rigs. Up on a hill away from the highway with a lookout tower to check out the surroundings. 24 hour limit on all Texas rest areas, this is one of the nicer options. Very good AT&T LTE.

I used to lived in Mountain View before van life and the city has made it much more difficult to stealth camp. This map shows everywhere that street camping is allowed in town. That said, we stayed in this lot last night. It’s a quiet public parking lot and the only posted restriction is that from 8am-6pm you’re only allowed to park here for 3 hrs. It’s about a block from the cal-train track so there is some noise but we didn’t hear any trains after 10pm.

Very nice place for overnight. Small restaurant nearby. We saw many dolphins in the morning.

Do not go to this business without fully understanding why they got raided in Feb 2023 and the outcome of that raid. Including the owner cable locking vehicles claiming it was done by the Govt agency. He is accountable for any missing vehicles that were “seized” or identified as potential TIP violations, not the vehicle owners. Read into that what you will.

If you leave your vehicle ANYWHERE, have all your immigration and foreign vehicle paperwork with a fully valid TIP on your vehicle. Only deal with a business that requires all that information to be on file prior to handing them the keys in case they also get audited while your vehicle is in their possession.

This is zero different then the arduous process of docking a foreign boat at a Mexican marina. Any storage yard should be adhering to the same or similar rules and policies, if not do not surrender your vehicle without knowing something is wrong.

Stayed for 5 nights at end of Feb 2023. Pretty busy on the weekends, I got there around 7pm on a friday and there were two sites left (out of 7 or 8). Not too busy during the week. If you can’t get a designated aite with a table, you can stay anywhere along Dusty Level Rd., since its National Forest land there aren’t restrictions on setting up shop for the night and there are already a bunch of pull-offs with fire rings on the way to the campground.

Side-note: there is a black, long-haired dog (maybe a Lab?) who frequents the campground looking for food. The owners live down the road and they let him walk the road to visit the campground by himself. I don’t agree with this personally, because when I found him he looked lost because was way down the road away from the campground and animal control told me that it was a neighborhood dog and there is no leash law so if he’s not aggressive they can’t do anything so they said it’s best to just ignore him

Besides all the males driving around the parking lot with their mufflers disconnected and their music blasting there were no incidents. The noisy males continued thru most of the night. We stayed a couple of nights with other RVs and semi trucks.

Camping ótimo, banheiros bons, limpos, com papel higiênico e sabonete líquido, chuveiro quente, piscina, local para lavar roupa e louça, pontos de luz, mesas com iluminação, churrasqueira, bastante locais com sombra, Wi-Fi (não muito bom), nos sentimos seguros lá. Aceita pet. Pagamos 2000 pesos por pessoa. Um outro campista nos contou que cobram 500 pesos por motorhome, fora o valor do camping por pessoa. recomendado. um dos melhores que fomos.

We came here after a horrible experience at Alitasha Lodge and it was a great decision. 400 kwacha for a large room with two double beds and a mini fridge. There was hot water, a restaurant with decent food, and secure parking. The staff were incredibly helpful going out of their way to help us with internet as we didn't have a SIM yet. Even though they didn't have wifi at that point, the lady at the desk bought a data package and loaded it on the office phone and let us hotspot. Overall, a great experience and well worth the money.
